About me

Life can be challenging and difficult, and we can become overwhelmed with emotions or intrusive thoughts. This can affect our mood and the relationships in our lives, sometimes creating a sense of being lost or confused. At times we all struggle and need help, and contacting a counsellor can be a daunting task, a task that I can support you with to make it as straight forward as possible.

Hi, I’m Graham, and I am a registered counsellor with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and a trainee counselling psychologist approaching the end of my doctoral training. I offer a safe and confidential environment for adults based on 16 sessions, with the possibility for extensions.

I work primarily from psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) perspectives, and I integrate the two while drawing on other modalities. We would work together to understand and manage some of the difficulties you may be experiencing, whether this be anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsions, loneliness, anger, difficulties with relationships, trauma or anything else that may be on your mind.

I have experience in the charity sector working with a range of difficulties, as well as secondary mental health services in the NHS.

Please feel free to email or call me to book your first session or if you have any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Due to current restrictions, I am only able to offer online Zoom counselling sessions at this time. However, I will be looking to be going back to face to face in the near future.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
